Benefits of Alexander Technique for chronic neck pain

In a randomized, controlled clinical trial of people with chronic neck pain, results indicated that a course of 20 Alexander lessons led to a reduction in pain and incapacity compared to a control group receiving usual GP care. These benefits were maintained for a year after the lessons began, with participants taking Alexander lessons experiencing a 30% reduction in pain after 1 year compared to the control group.

Following Alexander Technique lessons, 87% of participants reported making positive life-style changes in relation to self-care, compared to just 25% of the control group. The Alexander Technique enables you to become more aware of triggers that could exacerbate your symptoms and teaches you how to move and live more mindfully to help you stay as healthy as possible.
